Notes & Reviews:

Christos Hatzis' ballet score transcends and shatters the idea of genre and cultural boundaries by joining the searing and internationally renowned Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq who has collaborated with artists as varied as Bjork, the Kronos Quartet among others with haunting Cree songs of Steve Wood along with the Northern Cree Singers and teh Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra led by Tadeusz Biernacki. Based on a story by Joseph Boyden the subject of the ballet is the history of the infamous Indian Residential Schools of Canada but clearly speaks to the universal issues of cultural identity. Going Home Star was described by CBC Television as "the most important dance mounted by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in its illustrious 75 year history." With this double CD, Hatzis's score containing elements of traditional ballet, swing era jazz, disco dance music, dub-stpe and scratch dj mixes and beyond help reimagine a unique 21st Century music that aims for the kind of reconciliation and cultural awakening that is teh deeper goal of this multifaceted dance project.
